What’s on Your
Summer Bucket List?

It’s not too late to create your summer bucket list. Fill it up with anything and everything you’ve ever wanted to do, whether it’s big, small or random. Then see what’s practical to make happen before school starts in late August.

First on my summer bucket list is hosting a picnic for my grandchildren at Dinosaur Valley State Park in Glen Rose. Second is to visit Dallas’ own George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum for my first time. Lastly, I hope to attend a Texas Rangers game.

If you don’t live your days by personal goals and plans, chances are you spend most of your time caught up in a flurry of day-to-day activities. Having a bucket list keeps what’s most important to you top of mind.  Research shows that when you take time to write your goals down, you are more likely to accomplish them.

There’s no rule that your bucket list has to include big-ticket, extravagant goals.  Your goals can be as simple and important as spending more time together as a family. That can be accomplished by reading together or planning a cookout at a local park. Maybe you want to learn more about a topic of interest, so try visiting the library or a local museum.  There are lots of inexpensive ways to spend your summer that will result in cherished memories. 

Let your bucket list help you make the most of your summer months. Here’s to a fun, rejuvenating and inspiring summer!
